Session 1: Getting More Speaking Gigs – Why only SOME speakers find success with Dave Staughton CSP

The market for speakers and experts has never been so competitive. There are now more than ten thousand paid speakers in Australia. We are also awash with FREE Speakers and information online. So how do you get to speak on huge platforms and earn the big bucks?

In this highly interactive session Dave will cover:

  • The DOs and DON’Ts of getting booked by Speaker Bureaus
  • Less is More - transitioning from Workshops to Keynotes
  • Perfect Positioning - Picking the right topics at the right time
  • Practice Pays! – Nobody ever learnt to speak at a seminar
  • What to Avoid - The biggest speaker mistakes I ever made

He will also tell you some great stories and reveal just a FEW key things you should do and stop doing if you want to be a more successful speaker.  You can even ask him LOTS of questions and he will probably be very blunt and outspoken. Some people might even CRY.

Session 2: Lights, Camera, Kit: What You Need and How To Get Rolling! with Joyce Ong
